The Europe & Eurasia Regional Bureau serves Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia, and Ukraine.
The Europe and Eurasia region contains some of the most carbon-intensive economies in the world that rely heavily on local coal for power. The region uses outdated and inefficient energy infrastructure with increasing risks of widespread power outages during extreme weather events. In addition, water stress threatens regional hydropower production and its further complicated by trans-boundary concerns. To address these concerns USAID partners with local stakeholders and IFIs to support diversification of energy supply by developing common energy markets, achieving economies of scale for renewables, building energy sector capacity and institutionalizing transparent governance necessary for attracting finance and investment in clean energy. USAID supported clean energy technology demonstrations are instrumental in capacity building for clean energy integration.
